Chris Redlitz – Businesses Behind Bars

5 years ago, Chris Redlitz walked into San Quentin prison for the first time. He came out a changed man… luckily only 3 hours later. The serial entrepreneur and technology visionary had reluctantly visited to speak to inmates about entrepreneurship, but the passion he witnessed in that room convinced him to start The Last Mile, a business and technology incubator inside San Quentin, the oldest prison in California. On Innovation Crush, Chris walks us through his passion, personal transformation, the differences between incarcerated entrepreneurs and free businessmen… oh and that one time he sailed from California to Hawaii. www.thelastmile.org www.twitter.com/tlm www.twitter.com/ChrisRedlitz
